You need a LF camera or TS lens, that building is crooked! How dare they build a building "un-straight" in your prescience! :)

Btw nice color! What film? Provia100f?

I don't have the original file on hand to "zoom" to a 1:1 to show you, but basically it's something EFKE was known for, it's bad emulsions, dust in the factory or just production issues where there are white and black spots all over your image, in a small image they aren't noticeable but an 8x10 or bigger and it REALLY shows and it's ugly.
Got it! Yes I've read about this...

Glad you got some images in Stone. Apparently my ESP is non-functional. Nothing like my dream image. I like the sun-dial. Very on-topic!

Anybody else jumping in today?

I haven't been shooting nudes lately, more time than anything, but also money to travel to them, I never pay and often they pay me, but it's been slow.

I want to shoot some with my new 4x5 but haven't had a chance, and then finding a place outside at noon... In Connecticut... Lol

That's Ektar 100. I don't NEED a T/S lens or a 4x5 :) I like the photo exactly as it is - the imbalance gives it a certain je-ne-sais-quoi (that's French!).

Haha I was of course being very sarcastic, it's a lovely shot :)

After looking at it further (especially how the color tone looked on the metal) I figured it might be ektar100 but didn't feel like changing my post lol.

Good stuff :)

Okay, just a few hours left for any last minute, just under the wire entries!

Tomorrow morning… the winner will be revealed. And the madness can start all over again… :laugh:

Seriously, I've got a difficult decision to make. Thanks, people!!

First, thanks to all who submitted photos for this MSA. There were so many great pictures to choose from! And I must say, I never expected the wild variety of pinhole images. Crazy good stuff. But I have to choose one. And it is:

Sly, "High Noon Hose" - http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=74146&c=508

Congratulations!

I knew that would win, I even had it imprinted in my brain day after day it's really a powerful piece :)

I would hang that on my wall in a heartbeat :)

Ok Sly, all of my pregnant friends are about to burst so if your assignment involves babies hurry up and tell me before it's too late! :)

Hi Sly,
Congratulations with your winning image!! I fully agree with Martin, but I won't give up trying ;)
All my pinhole cameras are loaded again and awaiting orders ...
So I can't wait to hear what you'll come up with for the next assignment.

Whew! Thanks Martin. Now I'm responsible for the next round.

Stone, much as I love pregnant women, not everyone has actively reproducing friends and family.

I'm thinking "Transport" as a theme. Has it been done before?
Should offer lots of opportunity.

Transport sounds good. I've already got a few images in mind...

"Transport" is just fine. It is up to you to decide.
Do you want to give some directions/hints with this theme or not at all? Maybe an example or "anything goes, as long as it is analogue"?
You can think about it and post it in the new thread. Don't forget to post the link here.

Great choice Martin, and congratulations Sly. Well deserved, that is an excellent photograph!

This was the first time I tried MSA and the first time I've uploaded anything to APUG. I'd like to say this was a lot of fun and I learned a lot not only doing the assignment, but also from the discussion ( about IR, etc. ). I thought it was fun to see lots of pinhole too! I'm already looking forward to the next MSA... Thanks Martin and everyone!

Heh, well..... Pregnant bellies are transportation devices... ;)

No they aren't. They're only the storage units...

haha! I think when they are traveling it can count as transport... heck there's even a "canal" if you want to get technical... ;)

They're not transportation devices or storage units - they're charging stations. See The Matrix.
